3.88/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: the darker side of dark brown, with only the bottom of the glass showing a dark amber colors. On top of this inviting clear dark brown color, is a thick quick appearing head.
I love the way this brew looks
S: IT smells of light chocolate, medium caramel, and light fruity esters (a bit of green apple and pear). no real hop aroma, which is quite odd really.
It is a nice smell, but it does get a bit abrasive on the nose after some time
Taste: this one is conflicting, because this is something I shouldn't like very much, but do. This is actually a rather bitter porter, and I've had bitter porters like this one and haven't liked them before,
however this one works rather well
Maybe its because it starts off with a sweet, lighter chocolate and roaster flavor, and finished off with harsher bittering flavors, with a bit of dark chocolate on the distant part of the after taste.
It is surprisingly drinkable porter for its bitterness
It also covers up its alcohol very well.
mouthfeel: wattery and astringent on the tongue, with a powdery feeling on the after taste (like freshly grinded coffee)
overall: not a bad porter, tho youvcan defiently do better than it. but that's not the point
for the price, booz, quality, and size of this can, it is really a good deal, and a excellent thing to go for if your looking for something different. you could get through a whole party on just two-3 of these
A defient 4/5 from me. I might have this again, might not.
depends on the cash. but defiently worth a first try. It wont dissipoint you, not for its price that's for sure
If you can find it and split a 6 pack with 2-3 friends youl be in for a good night

4.54/5 rDev +23.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Pint can poured into a nonic.
Appearance: Pours a solid black with a one-inch tan head that recedes to film fairly quickly. Lacing is moderate. Carbonation hard to gauge because it's so dark.
Aroma: Coffee and dark, bitter chocolate dominate the nose. Fairly well hopped, too. Some booze is noticeable.
Taste: Follows the nose, and it's pretty terrific. It's a deep, rich, somewhat burnt-tasting porter full of bitter black coffee and chocolate. Pretty excellent porter - not fancy, but an excellent representation of the style.
Mouthfeel: Thick, solid body. Not watery at all. Has the ideal level of richness and fullness for a good porter.
Overall: One of my favorite porters. It's off the seasonal market right now, and I'm hopeful it comes back, because it really hits all the notes for a strong, flavor-packed porter. It has nearly 100 years of history behind it, and deserves a more heralded place in brewing history.

3.1/5 rDev -15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured into a standard pub glass.
Pitch black with a very large tan head. Faint chocolate on the nose with sweet malted barley and some floral hops. There’s not much aroma to this one. Taste is sweet up front, of hard candy, licorice, mild coffee and it finishes much drier. The body is very thin for a porter, but the alcohol is decently hidden for 7%. The flavors in this aren’t all that outstanding and I would expect more body and substance for a 7% beer. I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase this.
